Rain Songs

I.

Did you go out in the night
and feel the soft rain
on your face
like a thousand kisses?
Did you hear the city sounds
muffled by the mist
fall to the ground
in puddles around
your feet?

No?
Go!

II.

I am lying on the belly of the world

rain thrums my heart drum
my blood streams
I arch back
shafts of water dancing sound
on the ground
in torrents of ecstasy

I surrender
